13th International Policy Dialogue Forum - Concept Note
The over-arching theme of the 2021 Policy Dialogue Forum is Innovation in teacher policy and practice for educational recovery with particular attention to: i) innovation in teaching and learning (ii) initial and in-service teacher education and (iii) education policy.
As the engine of improvement in education, innovation is a critical factor for education to be inclusive, equitable and of good quality; it thus needs to be at the heart of education policies and policy making. The 2021 Policy Dialogue Forum will bring together education stakeholders from around the world, both in-person and on-line, to discuss the complexities of the post-COVID era and identify how to ‘build back better’ and ensure that education systems harness and expand collective capabilities for innovation. It will generate policy recommendations for ministries, civil society organisations, international organisations and donors that support teachers, school leaders, teacher educators and policy-makers.
